|Bennachie and Alan Johns coming home in front|
He has had some intensive schooling since that run and looked to have done well for the subsequent break since, so I was optimistic of a big run at Warwick yesterday.
Racing prominently throughout, Bennachie jumped well and, together with the eventual runner-up, quickened clear entering the home straight and the pair had it between them from then on, with Alan Johns producing Bennachie to lead at the second last. Though he idled a little in front, Bennachie had enough left to win comfortably by just over three lengths.
Having won a conditional jockeys’ contest he avoids a penalty, so we’ll look to give him a couple of options late next week.
